More and more manufacturers are entering the market with small electric cars. These are perfect for the city and can often be driven by young people.

1/9Opel Rocks-e: Some may wonder if this is still a complete car. Legally, like all small cars, it is not. If you want to drive it, you only need a driver’s license class AM. So it can be transferred from the age of 15. The electric motor produces 8 hp and accelerates the mini electric car up to 45 km / h. More is impossible. The 5.5 kWh battery is enough for a distance of 75 km. After that, the 2.41 meter long Opel Rocks-e will have to be plugged in for about four hours. Cost: around 8,000 euros © Opel
Renault Twinzy
2 / 9Renault Twizy: The little Frenchman is something like the grandfather of small electric cars. Twizy has been part of Renault’s model range since 2012. At 2.34 he is slightly taller than Rocks-e and Ami. Instead of sitting side by side, two occupants take one seat behind the other. Side windows are only available as accessories. Prices start at 11,450 euros. As the big version wants to drive, however, it needs a valid driver’s license. Renault specifies the range as 90-100 km. ©Renault
City Transformer CT1
3/9City Transformer CT1: Small electric cars have also been discovered in Israel. The CT1 from the established City Converter lives up to its name. Because the track width of the Stromer mini is adjustable. It is driven by two electric motors on the rear axle. The launch promises a range of up to 180 km and a maximum speed of 90 km / h. If you pre-order the CT1, you will pay 13,000 euros, later it will cost 16,000 euros. © City Transformers
Electric car e.GO Life
4 / 9e.Go Life: At 3.3 meters, the e.Go Life is almost big compared to other small electric cars. The 77 hp electric motor enables a maximum speed of 130 km/h. In the city, he should be able to travel up to 206 km. The combined range is 139 km. Due to the bankruptcy of e.Go in the summer of 2020, Life was not built for a while. However, the business was taken over by Next.E.Go Mobile SE. With e.wave X, the successor to Life is already available. © Marius Becker/dpa
Microlino 2.0.
5/9Microlino 2.0: BMW created the Isetta light car from 1955 to 1962. The small car is still a cult today and is now celebrating its comeback. At least the Microlino 2.0 is the same as the Isetta. The small electric car is available in three battery versions with a range of 95, 175 and 230 km. The 20 hp electric motor accelerates the car, which weighs only 450 kg, up to 90 km / h. At 14,990 euros, however, the Microlino is not exactly cheap. © Arnulf Hettrich/Imago
Elaris Pio
6/9Elaris Pio: At 2.81 meters tall, this electric dwarf is still under the three meter mark. In this area, the boundaries between a small car and a passenger car are blurred. In terms of driving, however, the Pio is among the smallest electric cars. The electric motor produces only 49 hp. The battery has 27 kWh and is enough for 225 km. Pio is sold for 21,900 euros. © Elaris
FreZE Nikob EV
7/9FreZE Nikob EV: The electric dwarf named Wuling Hongguang Mini EV is already very successful in China. For this to be the case in Europe as well, more safety and energy efficiency were needed along with a new name. It means: ESP, airbags, new wheels and LED lights. The Nikob EV is powered by a 13.8 kWh LFP cell with a range of 200 km. The small electric car should cost 16,000 euros. © Wulling
Electrofrog Bob Four
8/9Electrofrog Bob Four: You have no idea what this car wants to be. Officially, the electric frog Bob Four is a cabin scooter. So, 45 km/h is the limit. The electric frog should travel around 100 km and that for only 8,990 euros. In addition to Bob Four, Elektrofrosch has other accessories on offer. © Electric Frog
Spirit 802
9/9ARI 802: 2.22 hours, Ari 802 is very small. At 643 kg, it is also very light. Therefore, 10 hp is enough to bring a small car up to 80 km / h. In versions 252 and 452 only 25 or 45 km / h are possible. Ari says the range as 120 to 250 km. The price of Ari 802 is 10,990 euros. © Ari

Small electric vehicles in the L5e to L7e categories are becoming increasingly popular with manufacturers. Even with established car manufacturers, they are slowly finding their way into the model range. The times when mini-robots were considered retirement cars are over – also thanks to the power of electricity. The design is often still debatable, but micromobility can be an alternative to large SUVs or large electric vehicles. Young people are getting mobile thanks to small electric cars, because strictly speaking they are not cars. In the city, small children have a big advantage when it comes to getting a parking space. We present ten candidates who are perfect for the city.
